Monarchs & Beyond: Pollinator Stewardship (Plants & Pollinators Course)
This class will take an in-depth look at the biology and ecology of the monarch butterfly in North America, its migration, species status assessment, and conservation efforts. With an overall 90 percent population decline in the past twenty years, the monarch has become the “poster child” for pollinators and the subject of research, monitoring and education endeavors. Participants will utilize Habitat Assessment Tools, practice a variety of Citizen Science Projects, and plan their own Pollinator Enhancement Activities to become Pollinator Stewards. Class time will be spent both indoors and outside in the garden.
